Coffee tables are more than just a surface to place your coffee cup. They’re functional decor pieces and if you get creative with them, coffee tables can be an extension of your style and personality. Every piece in your home should be a reflection of you, and your coffee table can really make a statement. Whether you want to go with a retro, vintage vibe, a rustic vibe, or are into modern functionality, here are 7 creative coffee tables to consider for your living space.
1. Wooden Coffee Table with Hairpin Legs
A coffee table with hairpin legs is perfect for any room with a mid-century modern or farmhouse vibe. Hairpin legs look especially great when topped with a slice of wood. It’s a fun DIY project, but if you’re not very crafty, you can find hairpin leg coffee tables at many home decor stores. If it suits your style, opt for hairpin legs in a vibrant shade for a gorgeous pop of colour.
2. Window Coffee Table
Transform an old window into a gorgeous coffee table. Use a wooden window as the tabletop, giving you extra storage and a unique and beautiful look for your living room coffee table. Leave the wood raw for a homey, rustic vibe.
3. Wooden Crates
Another awesome DIY window project, use old wooden wine crates to make a coffee table for your family room. Place the crates so that the open sides face outward, to give you extra storage space. Fill the open spaces with books, coasters, decor, and anything else that needs a place.
4. Suitcase Coffee Table
Whether you have an old suitcase lying around or find a vintage suitcase at an antique shop, using it as the top of a coffee table will give your living room a retro vibe. Stack it on mid-century modern table legs for a look that compliments and contrasts.
5. Driftwood Coffee Table
If you want to make a statement with your coffee table, a piece of driftwood is a beautiful way to do it. You can use driftwood for the base of your coffee table and top it with a piece of glass, or use it for the top of your coffee table with your choice of table legs.
6. Coffee Dining Table
Multifunctional furniture pieces are all the rage right now, especially for small spaces. A coffee table with a dining table built in, or an adjustable height coffee table that can be lifted when you want to eat dinner is extremely practical for a wide array of lifestyles.
7. Tree Stump Coffee Table
Whether you have tree stumps in your backyard or you can visit some lumber yards, making a coffee table out of tree stumps offers natural beauty and is ideal if you’re looking to enhance the gorgeous rustic look of your room. Use two or three tree stumps of varying heights to create a coffee table in the middle of your seating area. Top it with books and coasters or make it even cozier with a faux fur throw laid over top.
